Richardson leads Colorado past Cent. Ark. 38-24

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Paul Richardson topped 200 yards receiving for the second time in six days, and his second touchdown grab helped Colorado outlast FCS power Central Arkansas 38-24 Saturday night.

Overcoming four turnovers, Connor Wood found Richardson all alone for a 30-yard touchdown that broke a 24-all tie with 9:16 left. It followed freshman Chidobe Awuzie's takeaway.

Richardson also had a 55-yard TD catch to start the scoring. He finished with 209 yards on 11 catches, which followed his 10-catch, 208-yard performance in Colorado's win over Colorado State in its opener.

The Buffaloes (2-0) snapped a six-game losing streak at Folsom Field and improved to 2-2 against lower-tier schools.

In their first game against a Big-12 school, the Bears (1-1) of the Southland Conference were in line for their second win over a FCS opponent to go with their victory against Western Kentucky in 2009 when things fell apart in the fourth.
